By that logic, you should remove PC gaming from the list too then. :P

Pc gaming is evolving and growing very quickly so :P

Yeah. I have an adapter for my Xbox controller for a few certain select games (Dark Souls being a big one, shit is so infuriating with a keyboard and mouse). It's wireless and it cost me like 10 bucks.

How per-say is PC gaming evolving and growing very quickly? Last I checked there isn't an idea on PC that hadn't been done before, or do you think rogue-likes are a new thing?

 

There isn't anything revolutionary being done to PC hardware at the moment, it's all just more cores, better cooling and faster bus speeds, we've not a paradigm shift like hyper-threading in a long long time and one  certainly isn't around the corner, so please tell me, how exactly is PC gaming growing and evolving... and if this is about the games being innovative, why not include the Wii U which is already doing with an integrated device what Microsoft wants you to buy a £300 tablet or phone to do?

 

And if there is some great gameplay/hardware innovation exclusive to PC I've missed, please enlighten me and cite sources so I can check it out myself.

 

 

 

 

And no VR Headsets like Occulus Rift don't count as they are just more complex/viable versions of existing devices and concepts.

I think it's more a trend. I see a lot more people that I would've previously tagged as console-kiddies saying things like "LOL LOOKS LIKE IT'S TIME TO PC GAME" and stuff like that. I think it's becoming more "socially acceptable." Not that it wasn't already but it's more...a PC gamer was nerdier by nature than someone that owned an Xbox 360 if you get me. That's becoming less true.

What's so hard about pc gaming to be honest?

Yah I got one of those for emulators and whatnot, although it's pretty useful if you can map keyboard keys to the joypad's buttons.

Not everyone has average or above intelligence, and those people are unable to handle a keyboard and mouse.

Not to mention it's just generally seen as more expensive (which it is if you want a higher end rig, even if you build it yourself). People also have a fear of operating computers in general (beyond facebooking and things like that). A console kind of just runs things for you. On the PC you might have to INSTALL A GAME, which is obviously terrifying and impossible.

Console: $500

Spare Controller: $60

2 games: $120

XBL Subs: £55

 

So that's what? $735 in total for what most people would consider an initial console investment?

You can build yourself a pretty damn capable PC for that, with i5, 8 gig DDR3, and a 6670HD plus your other components and a pad and have change enough for about $80 worth of steam credit to buy 4 or 5 games with.

Unless you have to have the best of the best, that's a PC that'll run anything reasonably well.

 

Hell add in the further $300 - $600 for a Windows phone or Tablet to use the smart glass features on the console, and you can build yourself a pretty damn hardcore gaming rig... for the price of an Xbox One.

 

 

 

 

 

Or buy a PS4, I guess that's a cool option too.

Unless you're playing a fighting game or whatnot, most games are pretty easy to use a KB+mouse. I mean nowadays most games are catered for consoles with that "2 weapon limit".

Not like they're playing quake or unreal with 9 or more weapons to choose from.
